Christie: Bridge Closing a misunderstanding?
Another GOP Tough Guy. Rep Michael Grimm R-NY. Threatens NY1 reporter ON AIR for asking questions about an on-going investigation.
The latest war rhetoric has been loud. Senator McCain’s “Catastrophic” if we do not support President Obama’s call to strike Syria and punish them for gassing their people. The soundbites of losing “Credibility” in the world if we sit on our missles. But this whole thing is BULLSH%T. Hear me out.
Assad is a tyrant. Given. His goal is to win the internal civil war and keep power. He has a stake in it. Gross tactics, but its war. War is Gross.
Iran has a stake in it. They are a neighboring country in the region — arguably potentially the strongest — they are backing Assad.
We are being driven into this on BS rhetoric. As an American and a Barack Obama supporter - I do not give a SH%T it he loses this vote. Let him lose credibility in the face of the world by losing the vote in Congress. In my humble opinion, he loses more credibility if he bombs Syria. He will be viewed by the world as no better than Bush. Now that is a legacy we all do NOT aspire to and did not vote him into office for. Sorry.
Our soldiers are weary. Our bank accounts empty, we have NO stake in this war except the credibility of our redline ROAR? Take a hard look at the British. They did the right thing. They are leaving this in the hands of the region. If the Arab League feels the situation is dire. Let them lead the effort and coalition to stop this. We can help in THAT type of coalition, if asked. The US is not responsible for policing the world. It’s a different world now than when we fought the other 2 World Wars. Our intervention will lead to WW3.
How about this idea? We call Assad in Syria and have a discussion. Obama & Assad. I’m thinking he would take the call as we have his attention right now. Am I right? Or we start a dialogue with Iran now that the leadership has changed and we negotiate with the leadership in the region? I have no interest in fighting John Kerry’s activist human rights war. Dear Mr. Kerry — you are Secretary of State. Start a meaningful dialogue. It’s your job. Don’t put his on the American military to finish what you have not EVEN started. Your propaganda is BULLSH%T. Your tactics are very weak.
Here is the tragic truth — we have not learned from our past mistakes.
NSA Blackmailing Obama? | Interview with Whistleblower Russ Tice (by breakingtheset)
According to today’s Washington Post:
Senate Majority Leader Harry M. Reid declared politically dead the effort to ban military-style assault weapons, a setback for President Obama and gun-control advocates who are pushing the Senate to move quickly on bills to limit gun violence.
Reid (D-Nev.) is preparing to move ahead with debate on a series of gun-control proposals when the Senate returns from a two-week Easter recess in early April. Although he has vowed to hold votes on measures introduced after the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre in Newtown, Conn., in December, Reid told reporters Tuesday that the proposed assault-weapons ban isn’t holding up against Senate rules that require at least 60 votes to end debate and move to final passage.
